Chawton House Library

Chawton House Library preserves a unique collection of early women's writing from 1600 to 1830 and enables its study through its internationally respected research and learning program. Set in the quintessentially English manor house once belonging to Jane Austen's brother, access to the Library is for the benefit of scholars and the public alike.

But the future of the Library's books is at risk if regular conservation work is not carried out. If you care passionately about books, please visit Chawton House Library’s website to donate and to watch a short film about their Book Conservation Appeal.
